Servant Song

“The Servant Song”

I was raised Episcopalian and went to the Maundy Thursday service at my home church.  We read the following scripture, “Now that I have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet. I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you. I tell you the truth, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him. Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them.” Everyone was invited up to participate in the foot washing.  Nobody in my row moved, except me. Right before it was my turn “The Servant Song” started playing.  This is the same song that was played at my mother’s funeral.  She was a genuine servant.  I looked up and said a prayer to my mother.  I then sat down to have my feet washed and became a servant as well by washing the feet of the person behind me.  I have been blessed with many things and hope to help and give back to others along the way
